Seiyuu anime Girlish Number held a talk show event titled ~Please take care my Chitose Karasuma~ at AKIHABARA Gamers flagship store in Akihabara, Tokyo on December 29 with Sayaka Senbongi (Chitose Karasuma), Yuuichirou Umehara (Gojou Karasuma), and original creator Wataru Watari.
The event started off with the ‘Girlish Number’ frankly talking!? segment. The first questions were: ‘Would you want a younger sister like Chitose?’ and ‘ Who do you want for a manager, Gojou or Matsuoka?’ Umehara answered as calmly as his character, ‘I would actually like a younger sister like Chitose. I like her the best out of all the characters in Girlish Number. I like people with peculiarities.’ while for a manager he would of course have chosen Gojou. On the other hand, Wataru had different feelings, ‘I would end up punching her’ and ‘ Gojou seems to be easy compared to Matsuoka.’
In the second half, Wataru was asked if he was considering a spin-off called Boyish Number. He said, ‘If there’s a chance to write about Gojou’s past.’ The female fans in the audience went crazy.
The last scene of the episode 11 was very emotionally charged for Senbongi, ‘[reading the script from this scene] I thought that she really likes Gojou. He got away from her and she got sad because they grew apart, (for Chitose) it’s not really chasing but I thought it’s like ‘I want to go to same place too since Gojou was a voice actor.’ Senbongi also said that it was amazing ‘to have the two siblings appear together here with the original author. I enjoyed talking about the sibling’s story which is also the main aspect of this work, and I appreciate to have had such a great chance. I hope that people will continue to support Girlish Number from now on too. Maybe you might get to see Boyish Number starring Gojou. When it comes, (Chitose is still tiny during Gojo’s time as a voice actor) I will prepare Chitose’s baby voice [laugh], so until next time.’
TV Anime Girlish Number was part of MANGA.TOKYO’s Fall 2016 episodic anime reviews.
